titre volunteers

 

 

A marathon mainly organized by volunteers.

 

 

 

Being the second marathon in France is not so easy, and yet the whole structure relies on volunteers:

* The backbone of the organization is the "La Rochelle Serge Vigot Marathon Association" which brings together 59 people, mostly from runners associations in the La Rochelle region.

Starting in January, monthly meetings are organized to prepare the event. All important decisions are voted during these meetings and are taken democratically by majority.

Each member of the association is commiteed in a commission, but he can not assume everything alone.
* This is why, around the event, there are 1300 “one-day volunteers” of all ages from all fields, sportspeople and non-sportspeople, associations, neighborhood committees, but also individuals who agree to give a few hours or a few days of their time for the success of the Marathon.
